Yikes. “Men, Women and Children,” made just $60,000 this weekend in over 500 theaters. Directed by Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air,” “Juno”) and starring — or at least featuring– Adam Sandler-– the social satire was welcomed at the Toronto Film Festival last month. But somehow it’s just died on the vine. Total box office through today is $664,000. And this will be it. By Friday it will be out of theaters completely. Sandler goes on to Netflix. Reitman will recover even though this his third flop in a row. “Men, Women, and Children” was all about how families don’t interact anymore, just through computers and gadgets. It could have made for an interesting national discussion. Instead there is deafening silence.
